She’s beautiful, she’s intelligent, and she is also incredibly strong. Read this to discover more about Charity Witt’s life, age, and body measurements.
Beauty, brains and brawn. Can a woman have all these? Yes, but only if she is Charity Witt.
Far from being a charity case, she is a fitness trainer who’s studying to get her license as a naturopathic doctor. The strongest Barbie’s face is also behind various sports and nutrition products. She beat over 30 women to bag the NBC’s Titan Games championship in 2019.
What’s more amazing, though, is how the elite power lifter prevailed over serious health problems and a troubled past.

Charity Witt’s Parents
The union resulted in the births of Richard and Charity in San Antonio, Texas. Their parents’ marriage was far from perfect. The children had to frequent the outdoors where they could have peace.
Charity Witt Early Life
One day while playing Nintendo with her brother Richard, their father interrupted them to say goodbye, and to never forget he loves them. She was nine years old then.
Her mother struggled to keep everything together, and it was from her that Charity inherited her tenacity. But the two women did not have a warm relationship.
Her father came back when she was in sophomore high school. They were no longer as close as they had been. Charity was no longer talking to her brother, and she had a younger sister whom she took care of.
The feeling of not belonging to her own family pushed Charity to look elsewhere. She was doing well in school but hung out with the wrong crowd and was drugged and raped at 16. A total introvert and nerd, Charity was not into sports at first and luckily finished high school.
Charity Witt’s Troubled Past
At 17, an abusive relationship worsened her pain and trauma. It pushed her to commit suicide by overdosing on cough medicine. Shortly after, she ran away to Canada. A job at a wedding venue bed and breakfast provided her with little cash and free shelter.
Her motivation and sound work ethic elevated her to managerial position in just a year. But she had a heart attack and passed out in front of her boss.
Charity Witt’s Cardiac Arrhythmia
After regaining consciousness she drove herself to the emergency room where she was diagnosed with cardiac arrhythmia. The physician prescribed her with beta-blockers and recommended her for surgery.
Not the one who likes to be told she had no choice, Charity asked for a second opinion and was told she can strengthen her heart by avoiding stress and increasing physical activities.
In November 2011, she quit her job and returned to Georgia with her family to start a fresh life.
How Did Charity Witt Get Into Powerlifting
Wanting to move faster and become stronger in the pool, she explored lifting and loved it more than treading in the water. She knew she was made for powerlifting when, at first try, she lifted 275lb.
Apart from lifting, she started doing yoga, endurance training, and a lot of cross training. But her newfound love for powerlifting was met with negativity, especially from her family, whom Charity said was “disgusted” with her new sport.
Charity Witt: Record Holder
In 2015, Charity competed in the Iron Beast Invitational at the Iron Beast Gym in Gainesville, Georgia. She surprised everyone by getting the highest scores and beating all participants, including men, to become the Best Lifter. In posting a squat of 280 pounds; a bench press of 170 and an amazing deadlift of 345 for an impressive total of 795 pounds, she set a record in the American Powerlifting Committee (APC).
Later, she set two new world records at the APC Nationals, where, in the 75kg weight class, she managed a 396 lb squat and a 385 deadlift.
After pulling a hamstring, she beat the odds and set more world records at International Powerlifting League (IPL): a 401.5 lb squat, 396 lb deadlift, and 984.28 lb total.
Charity Witt: Strongwoman
After about two years of competing as a powerlifter, where she had already won the IPL’s overall best lifter, she tried to look for other things to do.
Four competitive strongmen were attending the gym where she was also a member of, and they were the ones who encouraged her to train as a strong woman. She found it hard but challenging.
Charity Witt Pushes Naturopathy
As a student studying to become a Naturopathic Doctor, she wants to focus on alternative medicine for cancer treatment.
Her interest piqued when her cancer-stricken grandfather managed to live longer by changing his lifestyle, maintaining a proper diet and avoiding chemicals. On the other hand, she also had a grandparent who struggled with the side effects of chemotherapy to cure cancer. Alternative medicine, she decided, was the better way to cure cancer.
Charity Witt’s Diet
The nutrition-conscious powerlifter starts her morning by taking apple cider vinegar. She avoids dairy and takes in carbs and meat in moderation and is cautious in taking supplements.
Before powerlifting, she was taking 1,000 calories a day from veggie shakes and chicken. When she started eating the ideal diet for lifters, she gained weight, so she had to commit to a lifestyle change to pump up her metabolism and get rid of the fats she was gaining.
Charity Witt’s Boyfriends
In an interview, Charity said she had been in abusive relationships and remembered hiding in a closet just to feel safe in an abusive marriage. Withholding her ex-husband’s name, Charity said she decided she had enough by leaving and later filing for divorce. It was hard, but she was determined to rise from this tragedy.
In 2015, Charity was in a relationship with powerlifter Landon Jameson, Georgia’s Strongest Man winner, who helped her with her first lifting competition. It is believed the two were married in the past.
The two are often shown on Instagram taking hikes together.
Charity Witt: Titan Games Champion
As her Instagram account was getting famous, recruiters for NBC’s Titan Games show headlined by Dwayne The Rock Johnson, found her. Charity received a message from the recruiter but thought nothing of it.
Witt was contacted again, and this time, realizing it was legitimate, she responded. Making it through after auditions, Witt would then compete for one-on-one against the other women’s competitors.
Declared as the last woman standing, Witt went home with the $100K top prize, which she used to open her own training facility.
Despite her numerous record-breaking power lifts, she said winning the competition allowed her to trust herself more.

Charity Witt: An Inspiration
Having triumphed over domestic violence, Witt advises victims to learn to count on themselves. “You have control over your life and you’re giving them control by not doing anything. You can walk away, there will be people out there who can help you,” she says in an interview.
Pushing herself to the limit seems natural for Charity Witt. Indeed, she doesn’t quit when she’s tired; she quits only when she is done.
